Don’t tax middle class for the sake of the rich
Letter to the Editor
To the Editor:
House Republicans could give 98 percent of Americans a tax cut right now, but instead they're holding the middle-class tax cut hostage unless they can give an extra cut to the to two percent. Taxes are at a 30-year low. A majority of Americans want to see the wealthy pay their fair share, not get another tax break. Forty-seven percent of Americans want the tax cut to be extended for those making less than $250,000 a year. It's common sense to extend the tax break for the middle class right now, instead of making ordinary Americans pay to give the rich a break.
